Cubs' Addison Russell placed on leave over abuse claims

"When the allegations first became public ... the Commissioner's Office's Department of Investigations immediately commenced an investigation".

In Reidy's blog post, she details alleged physical abuse along with accompanying emotional and psychological abuse.

While the Cubs themselves can't punish Russell at this time during the investigation, they could release him if they wanted to.

Major League Baseball announced Russell's leave Friday in accordance with the MLB-MLB Players Association domestic violence policy.

Domestic violence allegations first surfaced last June when one of Melisa Reidy's friends made them in an Instagram comment section. The league said Reidy had declined to cooperate with investigators past year, but new efforts would be made. I would be very surprised if Russell is with the team this weekend when they play the White Sox, and I would not be surprised if discipline comes swiftly from the Cubs and/or Major League Baseball.

Melisa Russell went into detail in her blog Wednesday - claiming she was first "physically mistreated" by her husband in the months after their wedding in 2016. Why did he get so angry?

NatWest, RBS and Ulster Bank say online banking glitch 'resolved'
Millions across the United Kingdom and Ireland were said to be affected as the issued also affected Nat West and RBS customers. Combined, the three brands have about eight million online and mobile customers.

So, for all you who can't wait to come to the defense of Addison Russell, because according to you, of course his ex-wife is lying, just wants attention and wants to ruin his career, I mean this in the most polite and respectful way possible, fuck you.

-"When it began to set in for him that I was really serious about not wanting this marriage anymore, he just about lost his mind".

Russell denied those allegations at the time, saying in a statement, "Any allegation I have abused my wife is false and hurtful".

"Being blamed for just about anything that went wrong, name calling, intimidating me with personal force, manipulating me to think I was the problem, destroying my personal things, threatening me to "send" me & our son home to my parents as if I was privileged to be living in our home".

Russell and the Cubs are expected to make a statement regarding Melisa's post before the start of the Crosstown Classic.

That was a far cry from when Reidy-Russell first met Russell at 20, when "everything was ideal", she wrote. Their divorce was finalized last month.
